Cafe Daughter

January 19, 2013 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Café Daughter is a one-woman virtuosic performance, based on the life of Dr. Lillian E. Quan Dyck. This family friendly show is about a Chinese Canadian-Cree girl growing up in rural Saskatchewan. The story begins in 1957: 10-year-old Yvette Wong helps out in her parents’ café. Her mother has charged her with a secret – to never tell anyone she’s part Cree. She’s incredibly bright and dreams of becoming a doctor, but is put in the slow learners’ class because of her skin colour. This occurs at a time when Aboriginal children were forced into residential schools, provincial law forbade white women from working in Chinese-owned businesses, and Chinese-Canadian men struggled to bring families to Canada. Will Yvette flourish in the face of adversity and embrace her full identity?
